LIGHTBOX: Postcards from the Future

This year we’re celebrating our 50th birthday and, to mark this very special occasion, we’re showcasing the work of local young artists!

We invited all children and young people in Cardiff, Vale of Glamorgan, Bridgent, Rhondda Cynon Taf and Merthyr Tydfil to send themselves a postcard from an imagined future, half a century from now. We asked them to let their imaginations run wild: How will we travel? What will school look like? Where will we live? What will be eat?

We had an amazing 1200 submissions, and we were so excited to see such incredible talent.

We worked with an expert panel of judges to sift through all the submissions and make the difficult decision to choose the top three from each age group (5-8 years, 9-11 years and 12-16 years).

Then we asked for your help to pick your favourite from the final nine and we want to thank you for voting! We’re delighted to present this artwork by your chosen winner, Anna Hughes.

We’re so impressed with the creativity of all the young people who submitted their art, that we don’t want this to be all about the final winner, so we’re pleased to say that you can also see al the submissions in an online exhibition here:
